Well Indmar shows 17 brands on their website that use their engines. I bet at least a 1000 each, per year.

I think 1000 is a high # per each

 

MB is probably around 500-600


It's not what you land.. it's how big you go

That maybe true. I’ve heard Tige and Malibu do over a thousand though. No idea about the others.

There was an article back in '15 that said Malibu sells over 3000 surf gate equipped boats per year. That's a lot of damn boats.

I guess my thinking is when you have that kind of production, you can absorb a few motors without feeling it and keep customers happy.
I'm sure it's more complicated than that, but makes me wonder...

This scares me a little, my mechanic found some milky oil in the transmission line in my '04 when winterizing this year.

Is this related? I'm selling the boat as I just picked up a new Tomcat, but I don't want to sell a boat that's going blow an engine 30 hours in.

Sorry to hear about your troubles is be livid at this point.

You wouldn’t think so but according to indmar it is. So far our insurance company and indmar are fighting over it. We’re goin on 5 months now I think
